Tenuta Cavalier Pepe
Milena Pepe was born and raised in Belgium, but after studying marketing in Brussels and further training in viticulture and oenology in Provence and Burgundy, she moved to the region of Irpinia, in Campania, where her paternal family has its roots. Her father Angelo, a well-known restaurateur in the capital, entrusted her with the management of the family estate Tenuta Cavalier Pepe: 60 hectares of vines (for approximately 400,000 bottles of wine produced annually) and 12 hectares of olive trees. Focusing on indigenous grape varieties such as Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avelino and Aglianico, Tenuta Cavalier Pepe produces an extremely wide range of wines from which Popsss has selected his favourites.
Vela Vento Vulcano
The name of the cuvée is a tribute to Vesuvius, which adorns the label.
The grapes are harvested by hand and destemmed. After a cold maceration, the must spends a few hours in contact with the skin. The grapes are pressed and fermented at low temperature. The wine then waits in the bottle.
Floral nose, with fruity touches (cherries, wild strawberries).
Ample and fresh on the palate, with good persistence.
Seafood, pizza or Asian cuisine.
